    Pass score is 70%. I presume you haven't yet taken the test. I tell everyone to find out the passing score BEFORE they sit any test, not afterwards. It's called "exam preparation". All the information is on the AAPC website.
    70% equates to getting 45 wrong by the way.

    I actually took the test today but I unfortunately had to hurry and I guessed on maybe 25 questions. I heard that it was 70 percent for each section so I guess thats not true

    As I say, preparation is very important; it is not 70% on each section; that was the case several years ago. An overall 70% is all you need.
